On Thursday March 24, BeterBusiness is organizing a unique business meeting in collaboration with the Amsterdam Economic Board: The Future is NOW!

We invite you to participate in an interactive program at Hotel Haarlem. During this meeting we will work on initiatives that are currently underway, set up by the Amsterdam Economic Board, and carried out together with companies in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.

⦿ House of Skills
A future-oriented, agile education and labor market

Closing & networking drink

We will conclude the meeting together at around 5.15 pm. Then everyone is invited for a closing network drink and the opportunity to take a tour of Hotel Haarlem.


During the theme tables you will learn more about the current promotions of companies and how you can connect with your company. And do you need help, or are there other topics that concern you? Then we have the ‘Open Table’ for you.

The aim is to get acquainted with this and to connect it, so that the dynamics in the region increase and the positive effects become noticeable.

All renovations in Hotel Haarlem have been completed and so it is time for a new acquaintance with the hotel. Afterwards it is possible to dine in the restaurant of Hotel Haarlem. It concerns an a la carte dinner at your own expense, which must be paid on the spot.
